Would you tell your friend the truth if you know he/she is in a wrong or would you rather leave it as it is just because you afraid to lose the friendship?

Of course I would tell my friend the truth. At first he or she might get mad at me even not talk to me for a few days, weeks or months. But when the time comes that he or she realized that what I told him or her is for his or her own sake, of course things will still work out for both of us. Believe in the saying the truth will set you free.

I will tell my friend the truth. it's better to tell the truth than keep quiet at her even if it will ruin our friendship

I think you should tell your friend. Yes, it is somewhat scary, as she might take it the wrong way and get really mad at you. But if you clearly explain why you think she is a wrong relationship, and if she's a good friend, then I would imagine that the friend would at very least respect your thought and respect you for giving your opinion.

I would tell her the truth to prevent her from facing the painful consequences. If she knew later on that I knew about it, maybe she'd be angry at me for not telling her earlier.

Part of being a good friend is telling her the truth even when it is hard. obviously there are different kinds of friendships, so this depends on whether you are in a deep enough friendship that you can slap her upside the head and tell her she's doing somethign stupid.

i would definitely tell my friend if he/she's in a wrong relationship and it's up to him/her to decide if he/she's gonna believe me...what's important is i cared enough to warn her.
